TOUR FEATURES

Rosebery is at the foot of Mount Black and is an active zinc mining town.  It lays claim to Australia’s steepest golf course, Tasmania’s highest rainfall and Mount Black is the highest peak in the Southern Hemisphere with trees on its summit.

Rosbery is also home to Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls.  You can enjoy a nice walk along an old tram route to reach the falls.  You can also take a 20 min walk to Stitt River Falls, visit the Aerial Ropeway Heritage Display or explore the Rosebery Heritage Centre and visit the plaza to view the murals.

ZEEHAN

Tasmania was sighted by its namesake Abel Tasman in 1642. The small brig bearing Abel and his crew was called the Zeahan after which this historic town is named.

You can take a scenic walk via the Spray Tunnel at the end of the main street or visit the West Coast Pioneer Museum where you will discover exhibits ranging from flora and fauna to steam locomotives.

STRAHAN

Strahan is a truly Tasmanian experience. Strahan’s main street is lined with an attractive terrace of nineteenth-century buildings facing Macquarie harbour. In winter it is a sleepy fishing village but for the greater part of the year, Strahan is buzzing with activity.

You will enjoy lunch in Strahan where you can enjoy the view on the docks, visit the second highest lighthouse in the southern hemisphere at Cape Sorell where whales can be seen in the Spring; or view the Huon Pine Gallery and see wood-turners and artists at work.

Queenstown Thumbnail Western Wilderness to the Coast Day Tour

QUEENSTOWN

Queenstown has the atmosphere of an historic mining town with nineteenth century pubs and a brightly painted post office. You can visit where gold was discovered in 1883.

Mount Sedgewick and Mount Owen are the two largest mountains that surround the town. At sunset their summits blaze with orange and pink and by day they resemble a cratered moonscape.

We can take the Mt Jukes Scenic drive; visit Lake Burbury and the Bird River for an excellent walk along a railway embankment to the ghost town of Pilinger at Kelly’s Basin. The sawmill is located on Mt Jukes Road approximately 5Km from town. This mill specialises in rainforest timbers including Huon pine, blackwood and sassafras. Visitors are welcome to view the mill at work and purchase from the selection of timbers and tabletops available.

Tullah Thumbnail Western Wilderness to the Coast Day Tour

TULLAH

Tullah on the shores of Lake Rosebery, sits below Mt Farrell and is often shrouded in mist. Mining ceased in 1974 but two years later, the Hydro Electric Commission built over 250 dwellings to house employees working on local power schemes.

Tullah is a tranquil, peaceful place ideal for fishing, hiking or biking while taking in the wonderful views the western wilderness has to offer.

We take the scenic drive to Lake Plimsoll from Tullah back to the mountain.
